Trying to upgrade my SL 6.5 to 7.2, but can't find any option other than full new install.
What am I missing?

You are missing nothing.

There is no supported pathway to upgrade across major version numbers, such as 6.X to 7.Y

Just to echo the comment above, http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/7x/x86_64/release-notes/#_upgrading_from_sl_6

The best way to get my attention is over the official lists.
